Education Submissions

Paper Submission Deadline (Education Submissions): December 15, 2013
Notification to Authors (Education Submissions): January 31, 2014
Camera-Ready Deadline (Education Submissions): February 28, 2014
Submission Site: EasyChair

We invite submissions in a variety of formats: full papers, short papers, and discussions papers that summarise and reflect on start-of-the-art teaching approaches or exciting news that the whole SE education community would find useful. Full papers (10 pages, CPS format) include papers that describe research in teaching or developing SE curriculum, including theoretical and grounded theory works, as well as best practice and technique integration papers, with a clear description of the evaluation of the approach and recommendations to the community in general. Short papers (4 pages, CPS format) could convey novel ideas that provide a sound theoretical basis but have not yet been implemented, as well as smaller case studies on approaches where the evaluation is not yet complete, and positions papers on research directions. Discussion papers (6 pages, CPS format) can provide a venue to summarise two or more existing papers with an emphasis on increasing the community’s knowledge base for discussing and developing educational ideas, or to clarify industry perspectives on desirable outcomes from SE education.

All education submissions will be reviewed by the program committee. Authors of accepted education presentations are required to submit the final version of their papers for publication in the conference proceedings that are distributed to participants; a “permission to publish” form will need to be signed by the authors. Authors also have the option, if they choose, of allowing the published material to be archived in the INFORMIT digital library that is accessible free by members of Engineers Australia, and at a fee by others. One author from each accepted submission is required to register as a delegate and present at the conference.
